John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee will be seen sharing the screen in Milap Zaveri’s next directorial, which is a thriller, BizAsiaLive.com can reveal. The film will be produced by Nikkhil Advani.
“It’s a very tight script which revolves around a cop and a murderer. I can’t reveal who between the two is playing what but they are both very powerful characters and a dark thriller is a genre I haven’t explored before. We are looking forward to the shoot (sic),” said Advani, according to Ahmedabad Mirror.
Zaveri is most known for his stamp on comic capers but it seems he’s shifting gears. Advani adds, “Milap was keen to reinvent his body of work. He has recently directed a short film titled Raakh and wanted to make another film in the same space of a dark thriller. So he met John who loved the script and wanted to know who the producer was. Milap told him that he is close to me and would speak to me about it”.
Abraham and Bajpayee were last seen together in 2013’s ‘Shootout at Wadala’.
